Microsoft Studios brings classic Bingo to Windows 8

Few weeks back, Microsoft Studios released yet another casual, and free, Xbox game for Windows 8 devices. Microsoft Bingo is a fun, travel-themed take on the classic game of chance. In the game, you travel the globe playing your way through a variety of exotic locales and extraordinary settings as you fill your card.

As you go along, you earn Flight Points to level up and unlock exciting new locations to visit. Also, by playing in different locations, you can collect an array of souvenirs, earning you special awards as you complete your souvenir collections. With every feat you accomplish in the game, from calling a Bingo to making a winning bet on a Power Card, you'll earn special prizes in the form of Luggage.

The game has a great community feel to it making it even more engaging. When you place bets on specific numbers on the Power Card prior to matches, match your daubs to your Power Card picks during a round to get a Power Bingo.

With each Power Bingo awarded, the community comes one step closer to its weekly goal. Helping your fellow players in hitting the weekly goal also gets you special rewards.

Download Microsoft Bingo for free from the Windows Store. If you are a fan of Bingo (or variants of the game like Lotto or Tombola) like me, its great fun and very addictive. It’s available for free, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t give it a whirl. Let us know how you like it.
